I think you have to get used to how the young ones talk and write in this modern age.

I agree. In these days of autocorrect it should be quite easy to write properly. But that’s only my view how others want to write is up to them. I guess so long as we can understand what they are trying to say it’s all good

Understandable is fine, although meaning can change in the flash of an apostrophe, colon, or semi-colon. An enjoyable read is the book Eats, Shoots & Leaves for understanding punctuation use and change. I just don't think it is a 'youth' thing; the era and area we were 'schooled' makes a difference to word use and spelling.

not just you !
deliberate use of lower case ee cummings style is fine.
but when someone writes a long-winded paragraph as a continuous sentence without punctuation, it's near impossible to read.
that's a fail.
